    Yes, same thing for me, and also for all the snippets reports (FAQ, sitelink etc...), while coverage report is stuck on 7th of january, showing no loss of valid pages.

    One of my sites that dropped 96% traffic has really old pages that I removed over 6 months ago indexed again, wtf? (they're 404)

    Seems like some weird index issue..

    The company (G) has become garbage, they index its own cache pages.
    https://www.seroundtable.com/google-indexing-cache-28821.html
    They claim it's been fixed but apparently it's not.
